Shade and Lemonade

"Life is sunny Florida is usually warm - or really hot! Growing up, there was no air conditioning, so after working in the yard, the best place to cool off was in a net hammock in the garden, with a glass of lemonade. It was lovely there, enjoying a breeze, looking up into the branches of the old oak tree. It was also before television, but you know, you never miss what you don't know might someday exist. I was fascinated by the birds and squirrels over my head in the branches of that old tree. It was fun to watch the squirrels scampering over the branches, stashing nuts and acorns in their cache, a hole in the trunk made by a pileated woodpecker. And - Oh yes, I had a bird book and knew their names and songs. I liked to mimic their music by whistling. Sometimes they would call back to me. Sometimes I fell asleep listening to their lullaby. The medium is Alcohol Ink on Glossy Paper 4"x6". No brushes or pens were used, there are a number of other ways to manipulate the ink to get different effects."
